The tax breaks come because when you get married you share all expenses. In that situation it doesn't make sense to be taxed separately for your incomes when in reality they are combined. Have you looked into where the tax breaks come from for married people? They come from giving the tax credits for things that were purchased to whichever partner will benefit most (usually whoever makes more).
